Cheney said members of his staff, McCarthy, his daughter, Ivanka, were pleading with him to go on television to tell people to stop but he resisted the pleas.

Last year during an interview, House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy told CBS he has asked President Trump to talk to the nation and stop the chaos at the U.S. Capitol.
“I completely condemn the violence in the capitol,” He said. “What we’re currently watching unfold is un-American, I’m disappointed, am sad, this is not what a country should look like, this is not who we are, this is not the First Amendment. This has to stop and this has to stop now.”
